While a fuselage component is being examined, Boeing has suspended deliveries of its 787 Dreamliner series.
On February 24, 2023, the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) and Boeing both made the news.
Before deliveries can continue, the aviation manufacturer must demonstrate to the FAA that the problem has been fixed.
“There is no immediate safety of flight concern for the in-service fleet. We are communicating with our customers and will continue to follow the lead of the FAA,” Boeing said. “While near-term deliveries will be impacted, at this time we do not anticipate a change to our production and delivery outlook for the year.”
According to Boeing, it found an “analysis error by our supplier related to the 787 forward pressure bulkhead”.
As soon as the problem with the fuselage component is fixed, production of the aircraft will resume.
The FAA is also working with Boeing to “determine any actions that might be required for recently delivered airplanes”.
